Artist to bottle sweat as perfume

REJMYRE, Sweden, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- An American artist working in Sweden says he plans on collecting the sweat of Swedish glass-blowers and selling it to tourists as perfume.

Daniel Peltz, a conceptual artist from New York who is currently in residence at the Rejmyre Art LAB in eastern Sweden, said he hopes tourists who buy Swedish glass will also spend some of their money on his perfume, The Local.se reported Sunday.

"The glass-blower's sweat and work is something that tourists appreciate when they come here and look. So for me there isn't such a huge difference in selling the glass-blower's sweat and the finished glass," Peltz told the local Norrkopings Tidning daily newspaper.

Peltz is working with glass-blowers, who said they were happy to help out with the project.

"Very different. We normally strive after perfection, now it was about the process," said Elin Jonsson at Rejmyre glass works to the newspaper.
